Visual Description

Ripple out is a masterfully crafted puzzle box, or Karakuri, that was devised by Osamu Kasho, a puzzle master hailing from Odawara and Hokano Karakuri Creation Group.

Unlike many simple puzzle boxes from his fellow engineers, Ripple out actually has a very cool trick to it and overall looks amazing.

The box itself represents a medium-sized rectangle with a small drawer at the bottom. The top lid of the puzzle box is adorned with an intricate wave-like design that will hypnotize you with its pattern.

The quality of the material is second to none and gives off a fragrant smell of fresh wood.

Main Features

The main objective of the puzzle is to open the compartment, but there are also a few secret moves that the author included and a few secret compartments that you will uncover.

Overall, the mechanism itself is not super complex and probably will not take too much time to solve. Of course, as with many puzzle boxes, the solution will come together with the model, so even if you get too hypnotized by its beauty, you will still be able to solve using the manual.

The top lid pattern is actually divided horizontally and the top and the bottom part can be moved sideways. Moving the top lids will result in a satisfying click and you will see that the pattern will transform every time you make a move.

Finally, to uncover all the secrets of the puzzle, you will need to find a special pattern that you can combine. The author himself gives off a slight hint, saying that the shape of the drawer knob and the pattern on it will reveal the truth.
